's an fbi investigation that's ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. they came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately, are readily available in postrevolutionary libya. and it escalated into a much more violent episode. obviously, that's our best judgment now. we'll await the results of the investigation, and the president has been very clear we'll work with the libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice. >> was there a failure here that this administration is responsible for, whether it's an intelligence failure, a failure to see this coming, or

"the new york times" reported in 2011, "ryan appealed to representative cantor to cut off negotiations between the speaker and the white house because he didn't feel the terms of the emer
of how substantial they could be. the u.s., of course, weighing in heavily in this investigation. f.b.i. agents leading the investigation, and should be in the country in short order. what we're hearing in cairo is what we're seeing on those feeds is that there has been clashes again overnight and into the day between protesters and the police. we understand that the cordon has been pushed away from the u.s. embassies, so there is no repeat of what we saw on tuesday with individuals scales the wall around the embassy. another wall has been built on the other end of the street away from the embassy to make sure that -- well, they're going to get to one wall around the embassy, they've got to cross another wall on the other side of the street. but again, there have been clashes through the day there and we are just about look at the end of friday prayers and traditionally then is when protests begin. in yemen, the u.s. embassy was assaulted there yesterday. parts of the grounds were overrun by protesters. we have new information coming from an unnamed yemeni government official telling me
, mr. speaker, who served in the f.b.i. and federal prosecutors and in the military, they support it. the democrat-led house passed this bill in 2008 with former speaker pelosi giving a glowing speech extolling the virtues of the underlying bill and excourting her colleagues about the necessity of passing it. and all of this happened, mr. speaker, because intelligence is the lifeblood of our ability to defend ourselves. it happened, mr. speaker, because this bill has nothing to do with americans on american soil. it happened in the past, mr. speaker. because this provides protections for americans who are traveling abroad. it passed because there is ample oversight. it passed because it has the needed checks and balances between the legislative branch and the executive branch and the judicial branch. so why the opposition, mr. speaker? how can you explain supporting something when ms. pelosi had the gavel but you can't support it when mr. boehner has the gavel? and what i want to do, mr. speaker, just for today, just for today is let's put down the red herrings and the straw argument

watched that video as he was receiving his first intelligence briefing at the fbi building in los angeles. but then there was that mother jone video that came out overnight. we don't have a sense as to whether or not he's watched that video yet, but his campaign has said that the comments he made in that mother jones video regarding israel are consistent with what he has said before. i asked kevin madden at one point, do you think all of this is going to blow over? and, brooke, his comment was, depends on you guys. talking about us. >> i'm curious, you clarify one of his remarks. one thing he didn't touch on last night, let me play part of the clip and i'll ask you the question on the other side. you talk about the news conference thrown together, media numbers in shorts and t-shirts. >> it is not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff, in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way than i did in a setting like that. and so i'll -- i'm sure i'll point that out as time goes on. but we don't even have the questi
